Finally HOME

Still in the car seat from the ride home from the hospital.

Taking Jack home finally was exciting but scary all at the same time. Ryan and I survived on pure adrenaline. When that wore off, Ryan slept and my motherly instincts kicked in. It was an emotional first couple of days getting used to taking care of another person and figuring out why he was crying. Luckily we had the help of our parents.

For the first few days we had to supplement him with formula until my milk came in. It definitely was a trying time, since Jack's little stomach was hurting so badly. You could hear all the gas churning in his little belly. When we were able to feed him breastmilk things changed quickly and Jack was soo happy.

I can't believe how tiny he looks.
